  1. Let's get down to business! This is an open thread to introduce your character. Don't worry about formatting -- just be creative and write in a way that's comfortable for you. You'll learn how to use our official format once training starts. For now, let's just have fun! Here's how it works: your character has just finished four years at the Academy and has arrived at StarBase 118 for their "Cadet Cruise." (i.e.- your training program!) Your transport has arrived a few hours before you're due to report to the holodeck for the briefing. Maybe you want to wander around the massive commercial sector, or something else entirely? You'll want to start with your character. Be creative about showing us who they are -- species, name, and perhaps a description of what they look like. Think back to the fiction books you've read, and recall how authors introduce you to the main character of the story. You might find this tutorial "How to introduce a character" to be useful.

  2. Unfortunately, the last thread under this name was lost due to an error on my part. After a spammer posted two virus links in separate threads, I meant to delete ONE post from the thread under this name, and delete the "other" entire thread he created. I did it in reverse, though :-\ Anyway, let's start a new thread! Just tell us why you applied to join our community over any other group on the net

    Greetings

    Hello Everyone! I'm super excited to submit my application. I've missed the simulation world as I retired some years ago but with the renewed love of Star Trek due to Discovery and Picard. I'd like to brush the dust off and get back to what I love. My character idea is a Bajoran/Betazoid individual who balances both cultures in an internal struggle while being the best he can be. Looking forward to working with everyone!

    Hi all

    Hi all, I don't have a question but wanted to say a quick hello. I've run an RPG of a different IP for a few years on and off, and have always been interested in being a player in a Star Trek RPG, but did not want to commit to another evening each week. This is a perfect format for the character I've been developing. He's an unjoined Trill who didn't want to conform to the social traditions of applying to the Symbiosis Commission, and instead decided to see the galaxy by joining Starfleet Medical. Looking forward to beginning Cadet Training, and I'll see you out there!

    Hey All

    No questions, but did want to introduce myself. I'm Ridian Harris. I going by Rid in the Real World. Once I'm that training I will be play the role of Ridian Harris a 33 years half Risian, half Terran double major in Engineering and Helm Navigation. (I could decide between those duty post, so I had him double major.) I love Star Trek. My favorite series is DS9, and my favorite Captain Janeway. I found this group through a google search, and it sounded awesome. I'm hope made tons of friend here.
  6. Are you in training, or recently finished with training, and have some thoughts on how we can make things better? We'd love to hear more about these subjects: * How easy was the website to navigate? * Did you find the Cadets are useful? * Was there too much information to process? Not enough? * Was the process "step by step" enough, or were there points at which you became confused? * What info were you looking for that we didn't have easily available? Beyond that, ANY suggestions are welcome which can help streamline our process, increase your enjoyment, and make it easier to participate! Please press Reply now and let us know!
  7. Hi Everyone, I'm looking for a robust, friendly RPG and found you via Google. I've been an active member of another RPG for over a decade, advancing through the ranks to Captain of two different ships; Ambassador and Sovereign class. Including a stint on their Council, Academy CO and Academy instructor. I'm experienced and would be happy to contribute in any capacity needed, but I'm an engineer and command crew member at heart. Steve, AKA, Steven Matrix.

  9. Hello everyone! My name is Justin and I am so, so, so happy to be joining up! My training starts on Monday Dec 3rd, but I wanted to at least drop a OOC line to everyone and let you know how appreciative I am for the invitation and I so look forward to getting to know everyone and telling some great stories with you all.
  10. How come my latest post shows up in the googlegroup, but not in my g-mail inbox? Does that mean it wasn't sent or received properly?
  11. Hello! After graduation, I've noticed some sims in my assigned ship ending with "tag/tbc". Now I've been able to (hopefully) suss out what they're used for, but I wanted to: 1. double check I had it right, and 2. point out that as far as I can tell, these specific acronyms aren't explicitly addressed in the training or on the wiki. As far as I can tell, using "tag" in a sim means you've tagged other people to respond. But I'm confused as to its use. Clearly some ships use a tag in the subject line to make clear who should respond to a sim; the Montreal's manual states that "Tag: Name" isn't to be used in email subject lines, and I have seen at least one appreciation post that does so, so that much is clear and makes sense. But what's the purpose of putting it at the bottom of an email? It seems to me fairly self-evident that a sim that contains "Name: response" is "tagging" the person named. Is putting "tag" at the bottom of an email just to make sure people know that there are spots they need to respond to? I'd also like to point out that in the training, the ((Location)) that is required at the start of every sim was referred to as a "location tag," and that the ::double colon:: was also referred to as an "action tag". It seems to me that narrative indicators and calls for a response are two entirely separate things, and should have separate names. "TBC" appears to stand for "to be continued." If that's not what it means, then I am very confused. But even if that is what it means, I'm still confused, because the nature of an an ongoing collaborative narrative sort of implies that every sim is "to be continued," right? Unless the CO makes a final sim that wraps up an adventure, there's no reason *not* to continue a story, right?
  12. Just wanted to say hello and that I am looking forward to training. Greetings!
  13. Are joint posts a thing here? I always loved doing joint post. If so, where can i request one? In my ships OOC group, or the forum?
  14. We just started our academy training and I'm wondering about the process for responding to tags presented by other simmers. For example, the CO started the sim with a post. I posted my sim by filling in my responses where appropriate, making sure to fill in dialog in all the tags presented for my character. Then the FO posted their sim after mine but included an additional tag for me to respond to. Should I now post an updated sim that includes everything I wrote before, add the FO's dialog, and fill out my dialog in the spot that the FO tagged me? Is there more etiquette in waiting for the rest of the cadets to add their responses and then include their dialog with my second post? Cadet Jona ch'Ranni Trainee USS Centris-A

    Back in time, again!

    Hi to all! My real name is Roberto, 46 years old from Italy and a long term fan of Star trek .I've loved Original series, DS9 and even Discovery! I've made the Academy here at '118, several months ago, with my once PC Kol'Vat. Then due to familiar matters I have to interrupt the game,leaving me with the desire to return to write. Now, I'm here again to join this Amazing game, in search for a ship for my PC. Exactly, my pc, this time...He's a Trill, an unjoined Trill who's lived an hard life of loss of opprtunity due to the incompatibility with the symbiont. This lack brang Jillrod to the StarFleet and (i hope) to science department. Well, that's all by now! I hope to meet here my new collegues of course. Best Trill wishes Roberto
  16. Hello everyone! I am Joe and I will be simming as Ari Tullus, a Trill. Ari knew from a young age that he wanted to be joined with Tullus and worked towards that end. When he was joined it was the greatest day of his life. Tullus has had 8 previous hosts and is nearing 500 years of life, which is old even by Trill standards. Ari was chosen as the final host of Tullus, a fact which weighs heavily on his mind. He takes this responsibility very seriously and strives to seek out new experiences so the final life of Tullus is as full and successful as possible. With the ability to access 500 years of memories and experience, Ari is considered a wise advisor and trusted friend. Because Ari has so many experiences he has been willing to accept any assignment Star Fleet feels he is most suited for, though he dreams of being a starship captain. The goal is to be the best, explore strange new worlds, and ensure Tullus shuffles off the mortal coil with no regrets.
  17. Hiya everyone, My name is Jori Nyseth, as per the title, and I'm happy to have been accepted into the Starfleet Academy. And it's so good to see so many fellow Bajorans here. I am hoping to be accepted as a Science Officer. I've always be a massive fan of Ensign Ro, she was one of the first Bajorans to join Starfleet and escape the prison which is Bajor. I believe her Pah was always clean, despite what the media at home have said. Is there any other Bajorans joining on September 18th? Anyone planning on seeing the sights of San Francisco afterwards and show these humans how to PARTY!!!!
  18. I'm thinking of joining soon, and have written my creative writing sample. Reading the assignment back, I'm not so sure what is meant with narrative style. I've interpreted it as a story with the structure of a story, i.e. Intro - Body - Conclusion. But reading it back, I think maybe the layout of the story is meant, i.e. write it like a book, not as the RPG sim style, which I've done. Am I interpreting it right? Should I rewrite my writing sample?
  19. Ensign Malko is looking forward to joining the ranks, and meeting fellow classmates.
  20. Hello all, I'm looking at playing a Trill but have hit a stumbling block: Application and training to Join with a Symbiont and to become a Starfleet Officer both occur during one's early 20s. How have previous Joined Trill players reconciled the two? I assume Starfleet doesn't just let cadets/ensigns take extended leave that may result in a totally different person than the one they just vetted and trained. Suggestions and advice are greatly appreciated, thank you!
  21. Hey everyone. Real life got in the way of things for a long while but I am back with a different Character. Looking forward to simming with you all again.
  22. I Posted this here as I am having a hard time navigating the site and forums, many I cant view or post in and I'm waiting to be approved or something 0n this site. I'm playing as T'Katt Dugoras. So here's it all. I got approved and have started training but something aren't working right it seems. 1. I got an email telling me I was added to a google group, but if I click that link it take me to a page saying I cant view the group as I am not a member and it want me to sign into gmail, but I get all the emails from that group in my yahoo inbox and replying seems to work fine. Whats the deal with this and how does it affect my simming properly? is Yahoo not a good Email for this system? 2. I noticed in peoples reply emails its listed with their names before the title or subject line example: [sb118-acedemy2] Cadet so-n-so (: or -) Title or subject But mine appears [sb118-acedemy2] title or subject Is this due to a setting I am not aware of or because I cant view the group from that link? 3. The whole needing approved for the forums thing, I hit sign up filled out the info used the name CoryCodeRed as its my generic online handle and went to my email for the verification part but it took me to a screen saying i needed approved still and today as well I can only access as guest. not sure if this is just due to some delayed reactions or something else. Other than this I am enjoying the experience and hope to get things sorted out for the future
  23. Just wondering is the training for the 12th still on? Im from the UK so for me the training might start later in the day but just wanted to know if its still on as cant wait to get started with my fellow cadets today
  24. Hi there, I recently applied and was accepted into the Sim. I'm Lex and will be playing a Bajoran medical officer. I'm a massive Trek nerd and grew up watching TNG and DS9, I stumbled across your group on a facebook banner ad and thought I would give it a go. I am super excited to be part of the fun Lex (Lesko Aika)
  25. Hey folks, As a newly accepted eagerly awaiting my training cadet, I would like to say thank you for the chance to join this crew. I am a hardcore sci-fi fan, star trek being top of that particular pile. I would have to say my favorite is DS9 and Voyager. I have never actually simmed before but i have been involved in various forms of online rp, so I am hoping the shoe fits. Regards, th'Zarath Keval.
